Brick Sales Limited has become the exclusive distributor in Ireland of the extensive range of bricks from leading Dutch manufacturer, Caprice Steenfabriek Huissenswaard.
As a family business with over 150 years’ experience, Caprice is a proven and reliable partner that is focused on its customers – hence the company’s slogan, ‘Bricks with a warm heart’. This philosophy fits perfectly with Brick Sales Limited, a market leader with over 28 years’ experience in brick sales and distribution.
Marc Lyttle. Commercial Director of Brick Sales, explained, “We are delighted to be able to add the Caprice range to our product offering and to be working with another family-run company like ourselves.
“We are always striving to bring our customers new and innovative bricks, and that is what you will get with this range. The Caprice range not only includes the latest modern bricks but also a range of traditional finishes – it’s the perfect balance, and we are confident that our customers will enjoy selecting these bricks for their projects.”
One of the major benefits of the Caprice range is its variety. From a purely functional, standard product through to extremely precise, custom work, the possibilities are strikingly varied. This diversity ensures that Caprice can meet almost any requirement when it comes to shapes, colours, characteristics, aesthetic qualities, dimensions and textures. The Caprice range of bricks includes:
- Classique – The original, and still popular, range from Caprice
- Premier – Bricks with fresh, modern colours from white to black
- Structeau – A range of waterstruck bricks
- Sintera – A collection of bricks with engobes
- Sahara – Bricks manufactured with different colours of sand.
Thanks to the company’s modern, flexible manufacturing process, Caprice is able to realise the required quantities rapidly and effectively – colour-fast, dimensionally stable and exactly according to the specifications needed!
For the production process, Caprice uses sophisticated recipes from river clay and high quality Eifel and Westerwald clays. Internal quality assurance and external quality control guarantee a constant high quality of the façade bricks.
The company is also committed to the environment. From the initial extraction of clay right through to the production process, it all breathes sustainability – an area of growing importance within the construction sector.
All these characteristics have helped create a perfect partnership with Brick Sales Limited. Delivering a high level of choice and backing it up with superb customer service has helped the company to create a strong reputation in the industry.
“We pride ourselves on combining innovation with tradition, and the carefully selected range of manufacturers that we represent reflects this,” added Marc. “Since the company was founded in 1988, we have based our business on family values such as trust and reliability and we back this up with exceptional customer service.”
Brick Sales Limited works closely with architects, specifiers, and building contractors, amongst others, to provide expert advice on all aspects of brickwork.
“We have such an extensive choice, so working closely with customers helps us to provide them with options about what they want to achieve. We can even assist with colour scheming, providing both architects and clients with computer-generated artist’s impressions of proposed finish. It makes a real difference and helps the decision-making process.
“It means that we are involved from the early stages of the design process and we follow this through right to the end of the project. We are a reliable delivery partner who is committed to building long-term relationships.”
The Caprice range has already captured the imagination of architects with a number of commercial and residential projects already specified.
Marc Lyttle, Commercial Director at Brick Sales Limited, said, “Caprice really does offer something different and that is why it is inspiring so many architects and contractors. We have just secured several new specifications for Caprice bricks in Belfast city centre, along with commercial and residential projects in Dublin and Wicklow.
“The variety and quality of the Caprice bricks alongside our exceptional service has meant that the Caprice range has very quickly become popular.”
